‎"He started beating me 4 days after paying my dowry" woman says as she asks court to dissolve her marriage

29 year old Perpetual Ezenwa, has asked the customary court in Igando Lagos State to dissolve her four months old marriage to Charles Ezenwa, claiming the man started beating her less than 4 days after paying her dowry. Perpetual said she married Charles after dating him for less than 2 months and now seeks divorce over what the she tagged domestic violence.



She said, "we married after courting for less than 2 months. Before I married him, I've started noticing his behaviors but when I told my father he said I should not leave him that he would change after our marriage.

"I believed he said that because they are from the same village in Imo and being the first daughter of my parents, they want me to marry on time. But, he kept becoming worse and I've decided to leave after 4 months of our marriage. 4 days after the payment of my dowry and our traditional marriage, he started beating me on flimsy excuses. He beats me with turning sticks in one of those days all because I received a text message from a friend and the message only reads "good day madam, how's your weekend ". This was what Charles saw that day and he nearly killed me. Come to think of it, this same man that was beating me is having an affairs with a fiancée of one of our neighbors. He did was caught on one of those days and I got to know about it. I told my father of all the happenstance but he would only say I should endure it. When I couldn't bear it again, I've moved to my parent's house and I've asked Charles to come and get his dowry back according to our tradition so that I can marry another man but, he has refused to collect it saying he would allow me to suffer because he knew I can't marry another man unless he collect the dowry and that I would grow old in my father's house."
She now wants the court to force him to collect back his dowry. Charles was not in court to say his side of the story,  so the Court's president, Adegboyega Omilola who sat over the case sent a court order to him and the case was adjourned till February 8, 2016.

This is what happens when girls in this century allow marital pressure to dictate whom thet marrt.The court wasn't there when you & your dad agreed to marry this serial beater in less than 2 months of knowing him & now you want the court to help you? Bollocks! The guy beats you coz the first time he raises his voice @ you, tries to beat you but let's his hand gangs or throws object @ you but missed, you taught him that it was okay to do that.

Seriously ladies do fuck up sometimes, how can u date someone for just less than 2 months and assume he is the love of your life. Somebody you, it is not all about wearing gown and suite na, it is somebody you want to spend your eternal life with. Guy learn respect ladies so that your way can be smooth, love them, though they are annoying sometimes but that does not suppose to lead to fight, that's why the bible says, dwell with them with wisdom.


Divorce is a sin oo, so they should settle the issue amicably.

It is hard for a man that cheats or beats u to change after marriage. If he doesn't change wen u ppl are courting then don't expect change after marriage. It is only God dat can change him. Less dan 2 months is too short to date and marry a man. Some parents are the cause of wat is happening in their children's marriage. How can u tell ur daughter to manage in the name of u want her to marry on time.

She should go and marry anyone he wants and dowry is outdated no one cares.

Who said men don't change after marriage. They do. They can become worse than whatever you thought they were. Linda featured a big wedding last year. The husband nearly killed his first wife on the honeymoon or wedding night sef. Runaway and please don't go back no matter what.
